Goodby Smartphones

Today iam going offline with any of my Smarthones for Testing.

Why?

  • all current Smartphones based on nonfree Hard and Software
  • less patched
  • Hackers can remote force install Trojans as Updates (especially Stores by gov order)
  • non rooted devices are black boxes
  • rooted Images or Tools as Workarounds are often not published in which way the System OS is broken down, Hackers don’t work nonprofit !
  • Linux Laptops usage is often easier and much safer, you have full control and can run security tools to monitor
  • Apps for free do always call home at background
  • can’t control active background jobs and what they calc
  • can’t disable the USB Port for attacks or memory access
  • don’t know possibility about scanning data from active chips thru magnetic fields like RFID
  • fingerprint or biometric sensors are really nonsense
  • Smartphones don’t allow to edit the MAC Addresses of your device it’s like a Chassis Number of your CAR!!
  • .. and much more

When you can’t power down or prevent usage of your Smartphone then:

  • don’t leave it alone at any places
  • don’t use public wifi networks, cause attackers can take over wifi requests „man in the middle“
  • don’t use GPS
  • don’t use Whatsa. and fb, twitt. and other social media tools
  • factory reset monthly, better weekly, restore from sdcard by backup tools from first day
  • disconnect Data Transfer Option after use, safes battery too
  • blind all camera lenses, can be activated remote
  • put it into a Metal box to carry it in your Pockets, iron cage against magnetic fields
  • use often the flight mode to go offline for longer times
  • stick on a privacy guard on screen
  • use prepaid cards, change them from time to time
  • use SFTP with key auth always to sync data to you private internet space
  • from a other blog destroy the microphone cables inside and phone by a bluetooth headset with microphone
  • prefer less apps and select apps which the mainstream don’t use cause Attackers prefer Mainstream Apps to hack
  • DON’T forget to disable/switch  Wifi to LTE if BOTH active Google can LOCATE you by LTE and known public WIFI Accesspoints WITHOUT GPS!!!

.. step back use a old mobile phone for seniors 20$.. or use Linux Smartphones..

Remark :

  • iam not paranoid but if you read some blogs you will recognize that everything is used to break your privacy daily
  • security company’s offer services to everybody who pay’s the highest prices against laws in every way too..
